The Power of the Force (Green Card) ASP-7 Droid was released in 1996 and was a newly-created Droid for The Special Edition of Star Wars: A New Hope movie. To me the Droid is a bit plain, but it was pretty close to how it looked on screen. The ASP-7 Droid has 6 points of articulation which are Faceplate, Neck, Shoulders, and Hips. He is packed with Spaceport Supply Rods.

Variations:
• Stand up bubble and Normal photo on card front.
• Stand up bubble and Hologram photo on card front.

New York, NY – July 15th, 2014 – In 1977 a phenomenon dawned. Marvel Comics published the very first STAR WARS comic-book series. Now, the House of Ideas is re-presenting those original adventures in its over-sized Omnibus format - STAR WARS: THE ORIGINAL MARVEL YEARS collecting STAR WARS (1977) #1-44 and ANNUAL #1.

It’s the return of the Jedi to Marvel in an opening volume that begins with Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and ends with Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. In between, the rebels face a wealth of new perils — from space pirate Crimson Jack to the bounty hunter Beilert Valance, as well as a surprisingly svelte Jabba the Hut (one “t”). Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game, and Darth Vader hunts for answers! Revisit all your old favorites and discover some new ones!

Ok folks here we have the 2014 MS10 Mission Series: Senate Duel - Darth Sidious and Yoda Set. Sidious turned out better then I expected. One complaint though is his pure white plastic hands and face.

Agent Kallus, one of the Empire’s leading enforcers in the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series, is a major threat for the Ghost crew’s small band of heroes. Revealed here in this special behind-the-scenes video, Kallus is an Imperial Security Bureau (ISB) agent. According to David Oyelowo, who plays Agent Kallus, he’s ruthless, unforgiving, and an example of the Empire’s tyranny. “His job,” says Oyelowo, “is to basically make sure everyone stays loyal. And anyone who gives a whiff of disloyalty has to be cut out. So, I guess you could safely say he’s a bad guy.”

Lucasfilm’s Carrie Beck, director of creative content strategy, thinks Oyelowo is more than convincing as Kallus. “David brings a voice that is very authoritative and very commanding and very cool,” she says, “without betraying any sense of insecurity or weakness.” As seen in the video’s concept art and animation, Kallus wears classic gray Imperial military attire along with a threatening helmet for field missions, and has

Just got back from Las Vegas today, so on the way home from the Airport I stopped by Toys R Us to see if anything new made it to the pegs and shelves. The only new items were the Mission Series Wave 3 sets.

We would like to wish you and your family a happy and safe 4th of July!

If you watch the History Channel's Pawn Stars TV Show, you know they feature a toy expert that owns the "Toy Shack" in Las Vegas. I was a bit curious on how big the store was and how much Star Wars stuff they had, so I stopped by.

Also I made a visit to the Hoover Dam and stopped by their Gift Shop and was a bit surprise to see Star Wars products.
